I really need to hit the grocery store. All that’s in my fridge right now is a yogurt, some baby carrots, two apples, a beer and strawberry jam. So I thought I’d post some songs about (or slightly related to) food, since that’s what’s on my mind at the moment:
A Tribe Called Quest – Ham n Eggs (Buy It) – Matt, you’ll especially dig this one, since it’s about eating healthy. And funk fans will like it because it samples Funkadelic’s “Nappy Dugout.”
Frank Zappa – St. Alfonzo’s Pancake Breakfast (Buy It) A little bit of absurdity from the master of absurdity.
Maceo Parker – Pass the Peas (Buy It) So damn funky.
Tom Waits – Eggs and Sausage (In a Cadillac with Susan Michaelson) (Buy It) A classic late-night diner song, back before Tom discovered the joys of noise-rock.
Amadou et Miriam – Senegal Fast Food (Buy It) Manu Chao produced this Senegalese couple’s most recent album, and sings the verses on this great song.
Goodie Mob – Soul Food (Buy It) Before Cee-lo was dressing up like Cheech and Chong with Danger Mouse in Gnarles Barkley he was 1/4 of Goodie Mob, one of the groups that put the Dirty South on the map.
Alright, time to go get creative and make a meal out of my fridge scraps. Hope you enjoy the tunes.
